Rafting The Numbers – Get a good nights sleep … you’ll need it.
The Numbers whitewater rafting offers tight channels, steep drops, white knuckles, and non-stop action…this is ‘The Numbers’. Experience a true “Rocky Mountain High” as you take on all that the Arkansas River has to offer. If heart pounding, adrenaline pumping Colorado rafting is what you’re looking for, The Numbers is the perfect Colorado rafting trip Rafting The Numbers is one of the most difficult sections of commercially rafted river in Colorado. Although the numbers rafting winds its way through an awesome high alpine setting, you’ll probably be too busy paddling to even notice! This section is narrow, rocky, and technical with relentless drops and continuous Colorado whitewater! This is where it all begins, the headwaters of the Arkansas River! Thrill seekers beware; the Numbers is a physically demanding paddle adventure, not a trip for the faint hearted.

If this trip sparks your interest, but you would like a little bit of a warm-up, try our Numbers Full Day rafting trip. The Numbers Full day trip is an AAE exclusive and allows you to test the waters by starting the day with a rafting run through our intermediate Class III section, Brown’s Canyon rafting. Then catch your breath as you enjoy a gourmet riverside lunch at our family-friendly beer garden, and finish up the day by taking on the challenging whitewater rapids of The Numbers (Our Royal Gorge rafting full day follows a similar progression.)
